We consider a set of views stating possibly conflicting facts. Negative facts in the views may come, e.g., from functional dependencies in the underlying database schema. We want to predict the truth values of the facts. Beyond simple methods such as voting (typically rather accurate), we explore techniques based on "corroboration", i.e., taking into(More)
One of the main challenges that the Semantic Web faces is the integration of a growing number of independently designed ontologies. In this work, we present paris, an approach for the automatic alignment of ontologies. paris aligns not only instances, but also relations and classes. Alignments at the instance level cross-fertilize with alignments at the(More)
Various known models of probabilistic XML can be represented as instantiations of the abstract notion of p-documents. In addition to ordinary nodes, p-documents have distributional nodes that specify the possible worlds and their probabilistic distribution. Particular families of p-documents are determined by the types of distributional nodes that can be(More)
We introduce a new method for finding nodes semantically related to a given node in a hyperlinked graph: the Green method, based on a classical Markov chain tool. It is generic, adjustment-free and easy to implement. We test it in the case of the hyperlink structure of the English version ofWikipedia, the on-line encyclopedia. We present an extensive(More)
We introduce a theoretical framework for discovering relationships between two database instances over distinct and unknown schemata. This framework is grounded in the context of <i>data exchange</i>. We formalize the problem of understanding the relationship between two instances as that of obtaining a schema mapping so that a <i>minimum repair</i> of this(More)
Uncertainty in data naturally arises in various applications, such as data integration and Web information extraction. Probabilistic XML is one of the concepts that have been proposed to model and manage various kinds of uncertain data. In essence, a probabilistic XML document is a compact representation of a probability distribution over ordinary XML(More)
Web archives preserve the history of Web sites and have high long-term value for media and business analysts. Such archives are maintained by periodically re-crawling entire Web sites of interest. From an archivist's point of view, the ideal case to ensure highest possible data quality of the archive would be to "freeze" the complete contents of an entire(More)
